The BJP registered a historic victory in Gujarat by securing a record 156 seats in the 182-member assembly. Accompanied by Gujarat BJP chief CR Patil and party’s special leader Pankaj Desai, Patel submitted his resignation to Governor Acharya Devvrat at the Raj Bhavan in Gandhinagar. It was just a formality as the party had already announced that Patel would be the next chief minister of the state before the elections.
